This update 124.0.2450.2 (& 124.0.2438.3) breaks my symbolic link to the User Data directory stored on a different internal HDD.
When launched it throws up a blank white screen, no window frame or toolbars and then disappears.


Rolling back to version 123.0.2420.10 fixes the issue. However, Edge Dev keeps on updating to the latest version therefore have disabled related EdgeUpdate entries in Services & Task Scheduler.
